ILO Report – A Global Trend Analysis on the Role of Trade Unions in Times of COVID-19

International Labour Organization published a report A Global Trend Analysis
on the Role of Trade Unions in Times of COVID-19 that reveals the most affected categories of workers, workers in the most vulnerable situations and the sectors most hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, as seen by trade unions. It then provides a summary of trade unions’ responses to the COVID-19 crisis and the progress made through tripartite or bipartite social dialogue or via bilateral interactions with governments in 133 countries, during the period spanning March to August 2020. The document goes on to reveal whether trade unions agreed with the economic and social measures implemented by their governments, and whether workers’ and trade unions’ rights were violated. Lastly, it provides guidance on how trade unions can reinforce resilience and help to build a “better normal”.
